M.V. “Gentle Breeze”                                             For: Mr. Michael Bateman


I.    INTRODUCTION.


      1.     Statement and Purpose of Survey:

      Acting at the request of Mr. Michael Bateman, the surveyor did attend onboard the 37
      Ft. Wood Troller, M.V. “Gentle Breeze”. Beginning on February 13, 2002 an “out-
      of-the-water-survey” was conducted ( whilst on a stationary travel lift) at Alberni
      Engineering, Alberni, BC. An inspection of the underwater machinery and the
      exterior of the hull’s wetted surface area was performed. The ship’s papers were on
      board and appeared to be in order including the ship’s Registry or”Blue Book”. A
      brief sea trial was performed and the vessel ran very smoothly. The reason for the
      survey was to ascertain the physical condition and value of the vessel. AC/DC power
      was not used to check operation of the electrical systems except as specified in this
      report only.


      2.     General Vessel Description:

      The 37 Ft. Wood Troller is a de-commissioned fishing vessel and still rigged for said
      purpose. The layout includes 2 bunks and lockers in the forecastle with steps up to the
      wheel house. Aft of the forecastle and through the bulkhead is access to the engine
      room. The wheel house has the helm station to port forward followed aft by the galley
      counter and diesel stove. Starboard aft of the wheelhouse is the double settee which
      folds down to form a double berth.

      The aft deck has raised coaming and hatch to the fish hold and followed aft by the
      cockpit. The rigging has an aluminum mast and stabilizer poles and a wooden boom.

      The vessel is a “double-ender” of carvel construction with raked stem and soft chine.
      It has a full keel and skeg-hung steel rudder. The engine is dry exhaust with keel
      coolers.

      The power package will cruise the vessel comfortably at 7 knots. The current vessel
      configuration is suitable for its intended purposes, fishing and pleasure cruising in
      protected local waters on the Pacific Coast.

      It should be noted that the elimination of ballast in the fish hold, normally found when
      fully rigged and equipped as a fishing vessel, would impose some limitations as far as
      “sea worthy” capability in open waters.

II.     SUMMARY & VALUATION.


        1.        Statement Of Overall Vessel Rating Condition:

        It is the surveyor’s experience that develops an opinion of the OVERALL VESSEL
        RATING OF CONDITION after a survey has been completed and the findings have
        been organized in a logical manner.

        2.        Comments and Opinions:

        From the examination carried out, it is the opinion of this surveyor that the vessel was
        well build and maintained and is in good condition, subject to noted
        recommendations; it is suitable for her intended purposes, fishing and pleasure
        cruising in protected and open waters (with consideration to ballast).

IV.    STRUCTURAL.

             1.     General design

                    The hull and structure were examined internally and externally, as well
                    as could be seen, without opening up of paneling or structures.

                    Vessel hull and superstructure were found to be in generally good
                    condition. The hull, deck and superstructure has been recently painted.
                    Some minor dents and scrapes were noted, however, this is consistent
                    with past usage and the vessel’s age.

                    No caulking or fasteners were pulled at the time of this survey, therefore
                    no definite comment can be made as to their condition.

                    The hull and superstructure is constructed of:

                            Planking:    Cedar
                            Sheer Clamp 3 ½” x 4 ½”
                            Frames:      1 ½” x 2½" oak bent frames on 9" center
                            Deckhead beams (Wheelhouse):     2" x 3" on 14" center
                            Deckhead beams (Forecastle):     3 ½” x 3 1/4" on 17" center
                            Trunk Cabin:              3 1/4" x 3 ½" on 14" center
                            Guard on hull side: Gumwood
                            Cap on Bulwarks:    Gumwood

                    The stem is fitted with a steel guard and has welded anode zincs.

             2.     Above Waterline

                    The hull was seen with only minor scrapes and abrasion but overall in
                    very good condition. The vessel hull sides have been recently painted
                    and showed in generally smooth condition. A gumwood guard is fitted
                    along the hull sides, seen in good condition and varnished. It is
                    reported that the vessel was re-fastened and caulked in 1992

             3.     Below Waterline

                    The wetted surface area of the hull was seen in generally good condition
                    with no apparent wood decay and generally well secured and intact
                    seam fillers. Anti-fowling paint was seen in serviceable condition and
                    would be reapplied before launch; paint: “Tar & Wonson”. The keel is
                    fitted with a gumwood shoe seen in generally good condition.

M.V. “Gentle Breeze”                                            For: Mr. Michael Bateman


                    The 3 bladed cupped bronze “Campbell” propeller, D28 x P15 LH, S/N:
                    J6382F appeared in good condition with only a couple of very minor
                    dents. The dents are not considered to impact performance. The
                    external mounted shaft log and cutlass bearing appeared with only
                    minor movement. The propeller is attached to 1½” S/S engine shaft
                    connecting to a mild steel intermediate and steady bearing.

                    The skeg-hung rudder showed minor to moderate pitting but still in
                    good and serviceable condition. The bushing indicated no undue
                    movement, however, some slight side movement was indicated. This
                    movement was not noticeable during the sea trial, however. The
                    hydraulic ram connection to the steering quadrant should be checked
                    for worn bushings. The hydraulic steering ram is secured behind a
                    plywood cover in the cockpit and was not available for visual inspection.
                    The rudder stock passes through an internal steel tube extending to just
                    below the aft deck level where it attaches to the 360 Deg quadrant. With
                    the quadrant partially exposed it allows for a rod to be inserted thus
                    serving as an emergency tiller.

V.    DECKING & SUPERSTRUCTURE

             1.     Decking & Cockpit

                    Decking appeared to be in generally good condition with intact seam
                    filler. Some small soft spots were sounded but overall, the decking
                    showed in generally good condition.

                    The foredeck has 14" high bulwarks of stacked construction which
                    continues to the stern with planking supported on 2" x 2" vertical frame
                    studs. Some of the studs were noted with minor to moderate decay at
                    the deck level and some have been strengthened with aluminum gussets.
                    Overall, the bulwarks are still in good and serviceable condition.

                    The foredeck has a raised trunk cabin of plywood construction. This
                    features a large escape hatch 24" x 27" with a hinged hatch and
                    plexiglass insert. The hatch appeared in good condition with no
                    apparent leakage to the forecastle. Some minor softness was noted
                    around the corners of the trunk cabin, but not considered serious at this
                    time.

                    The aft deck has raised coaming and hatch to the fish hold. A checker
                    box spans the beam aft of the fish hold followed by the cockpit. Two
                    triple hydraulic “Simplex” gurdies are secured on the gunwale on port
                    and starboard side.

                    The hydraulic fittings and elbows on the deck for the gurdies and
                    anchor winch showed some moderate corrosion. It may be prudent to
                    service the entire hydraulic system.

                    The cockpit is recessed from the deck level and has plywood board in
                    the sole. A shelf is fitted and secured forward and under the deck level
                    in the cockpit. The fresh water tank is between the forward shelf and
                    bulkhead to the fish hold. Limited access was available to the framing
                    and planking in the cockpit. This area was covered by the shelving
                    secured to the plywood flooring and obscured forward from the built-in
                    water tank. The plywood flooring aft of the cockpit was removable and
                    showed the horn timber and stern post in good condition where could be
                    seen. Concrete ballast has been poured outboard of the keelson thus
                    obscuring the frames attached to the keel. The last 4 or 5 oak frames
                    forward of the stern post showed softness. These frames should be
                    “sistered” and fastened to the planking. Externally, there were no
                    indication of undue movement.
                    See Recommendation.

M.V. “Gentle Breeze”                                           For: Mr. Michael Bateman


                    Steering from the cockpit is accomplished by a “Morse” engine control
                    throttle secured on the port side gunwale forward of the gurdie.
                    Steering is accomplished from the hand held remote wired to the
                    autopilot at the helm station.

             2.     Superstructure

                    The superstructure is made of painted plywood over framing.
                    Generally, the superstructure showed in good condition with only minor
                    areas of softness noted.

                    The bulkhead has a hinged “Dutch” door giving access to the
                    wheelhouse. All windows are hardened glass in wood framing. The
                    wheelhouse has 5 opening windows which drops down inside the
                    framing and consist of the two forward side windows, the side above the
                    settee and galley area and the aft bulkhead. The small opening window
                    at the helm showed a minor crack in to top forward corner.

                    The cabin top supports the exhaust stacks for the engine and stove, seen
                    well shielded, as well as the radar dome and spot light. The cabin top
                    did not indicate any undue softness.

             3.     Rigging

                    The aluminum 4½" mast assembly with aluminum spreader, 3"
                    stabilizer poles and 5" wood boom, appeared in generally good
                    condition and well secured. The mast is secured with 7/16" galvanized
                    wires, chain and turnbuckles on the forestay and shrouds. The shrouds
                    are attached to external chain plates secured on the hull sides. These
                    were noted with moderate corrosion and should be monitored.

VI.   INTERNAL VESSEL LAYOUT & ACCOMMODATIONS .

      1.     General Quarters

             The forecastle is fitted with two bunks to starboard and bench to port, both
             with stowage below. Aft of the bunks on starboard side is a “Brydon” manual
             head secured to the floor. At this time the head is not functional. The head in
             and discharge for the head has through hulls and valves installed on the hull
             side behind the head, however, they have been capped with planking on the
             outside of the hull. Further, if made operational, the valves were found seized
             and would need to be serviced or replaced prior to use.

             The forecastle hull sides have been sheathed with painted planking giving
             limited access to the hull side and framing. The forefoot and stem appeared in
             good condition with no indication of seepage or decay where could be seen.
             Some minor corrosion was seeping from a few fasteners but overall give no
             indication of any major problem. There was no indication of leakage from the
             sheer clamp, deckhead planking and escape hatch. Removable steps on the
             forecastle bulkhead leads up the wheelhouse.

             The wheelhouse has the steering position, 18" wooden wheel and fixed helm
             seat to port. The helm station has full engine instrumentation and electronics
             as noted.

             Starboard aft of the wheelhouse is the double settee and pedestal table which
             drops down to form a double berth. The settee is on a raised platform with
             drawer below. A hinged chart table is secured to the deckhead above the settee.

             The galley counter and diesel stove is aft of the helm seat. The diesel stove was
             seen well shielded against the hull side and bulkhead as well as the stack
             through the deckhead. The counter has a S/S sink with a hand pump. Stowage
             and drawers are fitted under the counter. Hot water is supplied from a 5 gallon
             “solar” plastic bladder bag located in the engine room. The bag is
             interconnected to the “Jabsco” diaphragm pump. The bag is heated when the
             engine is running and heating the engine room and water bag at the same time.
             A hose is fitted to the aft deck bulkhead allowing for a hot shower.

             The seating in the wheelhouse has a mixture of vinyl and fabric covered
             cushions. The hull sides are fully paneled and the sole has a one linoleum
             cover.

      2.     Engine Compartment

             The engine compartment is accessed from a hatch in forecastle bulkhead and is
             located under the wheelhouse. The engine room has limited room and access
             around the engine. The bilge below the engine was seen moderately soiled and
             should be properly cleaned.
             See Recommendation

      3.     Fish Hold.

             The hold is fully fiberglassed over foam and divided into 5 sections with
             wooden pen board. A plywood cover is secured over the engine shaft running
             longitudinally through the fish hold. A small plywood hatch 4" x 10" gives
             access to the steady bearing. Overall, the hold appeared in generally good
             condition. Some corrosion seepage through the foam was noted. This
             appeared to be from the external chain plates bolted to the hull sides for the
             shrouds. It may be prudent to remove the foam in these area and inspect the
             bolts and frames.

VII.   SYSTEM S.

       1.    Propulsion Machinery

             Perkins Model C-130          S/N: 354U5398          (new 1968)    Hours: N/A

             Cyl: 6 HP: 130        Gear: Capital HDEC-8900 Ratio: N/A

             Engine Shaft: 1½“ S/S with mild steel intermediate         Exhaust Type : Dry

             Engine Cooling: Fresh Water via keel coolers (2 runs)      Ventilation: Natural

             The engine exhaust pipe was seen with moderate corrosion in the flanges and
             bolts. The muffler is shielded behind the funnel encased through the
             wheelhouse bulkhead and not available for inspection. The exhaust pipe is not
             lagged, where could be seen, and may be a preferable addition. It is
             recommended that the exhaust system be fully exposed and checked for proper
             operation and potential leakage of exhaust fumes.
             See Recommendation.

             The engine was seen in fair to good condition. The engine could do with a
             good clean up.

             A cold start of the engine indicated heavy smoke in the exhaust initially. Once
             the engine got warm, the smoke appeared to be minor. Oil pressure on start up
             indicated 50 Lb. and dropped to 40 Lb. after the engine heated up. It is
             suspected that the engine has extended hours and will require some service over
             the next few hundred hours. A “warm” oil sample was taken from the engine,
             after the sea trial, and will be reported separately from this report, once it
             becomes available.

             The engine mounting assembly and bolts appear to be in generally good
             condition but indicated some minor corrosion.

             The engine was not run or tested any further, therefore, no comments will be
             made as to its internal condition.

       2.    Engine controls and steering.

             The engine controls are by way of rod and cable control to the engine. The
             vessel is equipped with a single steering position. The hydraulic fittings behind
             the helm station noted some minor leakage and should be checked.
             See Recommendation

             Steering from the cockpit can be done with dual “Morse” control throttle lever
             (note: the shift lever is not connected) and the remote handheld unit wired to

      3.     Fuel Systems.

             The main engine is supplied by way of 2 fuel tanks (mild steel) secured
             outboard aft in the engine room. The tanks, where could seen, appeared in
             generally good condition with only minor to moderate surface corrosion. No
             access is available above, below and outboard of the tanks, therefore, no
             comment can be made as to overall condition.

             The fuel line is interconnected with a “Racor” Model: 500FG external fuel
             filter.

X.    TERM INOLOGY & REFERENCES.
      a.     Corrosion:
             The following terminology and definitions are used in this report:

             Erosion: A mechanical corrosion caused by friction.

             Electro-Chemical: A corrosion caused by the difference in current charge between dissimilar
             metals (scale of nobility). When two material have a sufficiently different charge (be it positive
             or negative), then a flow of current (electrons) will occur.

             Galvanism: The term applied to the flow of electrons when two dissimilar metals are joined. In
             a dry condition little or nothing will happen, but add water which becomes a conductor and
             corrosion will blossom.

             Electrolysis: The simple result of stray current, and nothing else. Often used as a “Catch all”
             to describe any kind of corrosion.

             Crevice Corrosion: This involves water, metals and crevices while at the same time reducing or
             eliminating air exposure. Crevice corrosion is the same thing as galvanism, only it occurs
             under different circumstance. Briefly, the water/metal interface oxidizes and turns the water
             into acid. This changes the electrical makeup of affected metals, generating an electrical
             current that “dissolves” the metals involved. It is most commonly observed in thru-hull fitting
             leaching rust.

             Stress Corrosion: This occurs when metals are under heavy stress. This is a combination of
             crevice corrosion cells combined with heavy loading. It most often occurs in sail boat rigging
             and power boat propeller shafts. All it takes is for a tiny pit to form on a shaft to initiate the
             crevice/stress corrosion cycle that will ultimately result in fatigue failure.
